This is a magnificent late-harvest wine, picked at 39 brix and possessing 11% residual sugar. Despite the concentration and sweetness, the acid balance is impeccable and the wine is anything but cloying. Honeyed pear, apricot, melon fruit with a lovely, spicy botrytis edge; very full and long in mouth. Worth every penny. Along with the Arrowood late-harvest Rieslings, this wine is one of my favorite California sweet Rieslings. [Price is $30 for 375ml bottle.] - WB Team 2012-09-07
